PRESCHOOL
Each week we have a preschool theme that some of our activities will be based around as well
as alphabet focus. At times we will have field trips, special days or movies related to the theme.
Every week we create lesson plans from our extensive teaching materials. This plan includes a
mixture of small motor, large muscle, art, science/sensory, math, reading/writing, singing and
cooking. If the group is struggling with a particular concept we may continue with that same
concept the following week. Our preschool program is tailored specifically to meet the need of
the entire mixed aged  group, so that all children are able to participate at their own interest  
level.

Parents are able to learn about their child's day and view photos through this site.

take them home to share with Mom & Dad what they've learned!
